    Courtesy, Safety, and Course Etiquette
  • Please keep shooting groups limited to four shooters. If you have more in your group, please start another group.
  • Please maintain supervision and control of your children (shooting and non-shooting) at all times for the safety of everyone.
  • When searching for arrows that miss a target, please limit your search to not more than five minutes if another group is waiting behind you. You can always come back later and continue your search.
  • Please allow faster groups to “play through.”
  • Please, for the sake of safety, do not nock your arrow until you have reached the shooting stake for your class and you have taken your position to shoot. Mixed groups should shoot from back to front, blue stake first, then the white stake, and finally the red stake.
  • Water will be available on the course. Please dispose of cups and any trash that you carry onto the course in the trash bags/cans provided. Please help keep our club property clean and do not litter.
  • Please do not move any target or shooting stake or remove any brush from around the stake or target. Every competitor should have equal opportunity on the courses, all day long.
  • Please do your best to leave all vegetation in place at shooting stakes and in shooting lanes. The shot should be the same for everyone, all day long.
  • Please keep all pets on a leash and under your immediate control at all times. Please clean up after your pets while visiting our club and properly dispose of any pet related waste. Nobody wants to step in anything.

Good shoot last Sunday. We entertained 83 registered shooters in the heat and humidity of dog days. As far as I am aware, everyone went away satisfied that they'd been adequately challenged as far as the course was concerned.

Thanks to all who played a part in making our year what it was. We'll do it again in January, the Lord willing.
